Kodak EasyShare Z950 Digital Camera Review

The Hardware (Cont'd)

The bottom of the Z950, shown in Figure 7, has a plastic door that opens to reveal the batter and SD memory card slot. Unfortunately the door is very flimsy. Although the hinges are metal and the door swings open gingerly, we had to question the durability of the door itself.

When the battery door is closed as it is in Figure 8, you see a metal tripod mount in the middle of the camera. Unfortunately, when a tripod is attached, you cannot access the memory card. For some, this won’t make any difference, but it is a pet peeve of ours. We like to be able to mount the camera on a tripod and still access the memory card to move our pictures to the computer during a tripod session.

On the side of the Z950, you will find a rubberized door that opens to reveal a 5V DC-input and the USB/AV output, as shown in Figure 9. However, no video cables are included.

Above this is a protruding strap holder. Although this is again made of plastic, it seems very sturdy.
